We profiled Edgewood assistant softball coach and head coach of the Ohio Outlaws 16U Silver showcase team, Dave Blashinsky, on these pages in Monday’s edition and his Outlaws squad returned from Philadelphia after a solid performance over the weekend at the Pennsbury Tournament.
The Outlaws, which include local standouts Lexi Zappitelli of Conneaut, the 2013 Star Beacon Ashtabula County Player of the Year, and Edgewood’s Sam Blashinsky and Taylor Rowe, went undefeated, winning three games in the City of Brotherly Love and tying one. They were rained out Friday night.
The Outlaws defeated Morris County Belles 18U Gold, 5-0, the Midnight Suns 18U Gold, a team from Alaska, 6-2, the Rhode Island Thunder, 8-2, and tied the New Jersey Outlaws 18U Gold, 2-2.
Blashinsky reports more than 250 college coaches were in attendance over the weekend.
This weekend, the Outlaws will head to the Ohio ASA State Tournament in Findlay.
